Changing Gears Challenge Grant
With YOUR help, Bicycling In Greensboro (BIG) reached its goal for the Changing Gears Challenge Grant!!
BIG and the three anonymous donors who funded the Changing Gears Challenge Grant send out a huge 'THANK YOU' to all of you who contributed and helped us meet the $1,500 challenge! We especially want to thank Green Valley OB/Gyn, for the final $500 contribution that pushed us past the fundraising goal. This challenge translates into a total of $3,000 for the Changing Gears program!
This generous support will help us purchase lights, locks, tires, tubes, tools, and other supplies so that Changing Gears can continue to put affordable, reliable transportation in the hands of less fortunate members of our community, enabling them to find or retain employment or housing!
If you're interested in helping the Changing Gears program in non-monetary ways, here are some alternatives:
+ donate new or used bicycles or parts (frames, wheels, tubes, locks, lights, brake pads, cables, pedals, seats, etc.); OR
+ donate tools (bike-specific or otherwise), or supplies (shop towels, cleaners, lubricants, etc.); OR
+ donate your time at our bike fix-up sessions, or bike safety training classes; OR
+ just help spread the word about how Changing Gears is changing peoples' lives!
